Five members of the Finpro’s Big Science Project Team from Finland visited Culham on the 12-13 October 2006. The visitors were given an overview of the JET programme and shown round the experimental facilities including the Remote Handling area and the JET Torus Hall.
The Finpro team also visited the Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST). A round table discussion then took place where examples of best practices were exchanged to establish how the industry team can help form consortia between UK and Finnish Companies and how to try and identify opportunities whereby companies from the UK and Finland could collaborate to help deliver goods/services to ITER.
“Finpro’s visit was well timed and we look forward to working with them” said Dan Mistry, UKAEA Fusion and Industry Manager.
